TONY ZAGORAIOS Even though OCV make their music style more straightforward in that album, without blending various influences, i have to admit that this is a grreat one. The singers voice is so unique and the way he performs is truly emotional. Love the atmosphere and simplicity of these songs!! Favorite track: Gone.

Tyler Lorn OCV's music is some of the best there is, it's like listening to a great post rock band like "If these trees could talk", only with vocals. WITH GREAT VOCALS. With vocals and lyrics that make it sound even better. The new vocalist stays true to the old gritty sound and it sets them a part from anything else in similar genres. OCV is truly something unique, and much deserving of support.

DonnieDarko Can't wait to hear the complete album, I loved all their previous releases as they differ from the normal post-rock sound.

about

Austrian ambient rockers Our Ceasing Voice have always thrived on change. At the heart of their new sound are vocals as distinctive as the music itself: dark and poetic, dramatic and brave. It's a soundtrack for late hours of long summer nights. Music for the times when every kiss goodbye seems too brief, and when farewells still bear the hope of sweet reunion.

Track Name: The Arsonists
we don‘t have the ghost of a chance
and no hope that we make it through alive
you see
we ain‘t praying but fighting
for just one spark to light
the one thing we still got

we sold our future
just so we could get back at them
and reclaim our past
you see
we ain‘t praying but fighting
for just one spark to light
the one thing we still got

we hold up our torches
and start to sing

this is not the beginning of the end
this is is, my darling, the bitterest end
this is not the beginning
nor the beginning of the end
this is is, my darling, the bitterest end

look into the flames
and you will see
just the same dreary
bleakness as we
do eternally

come on and
look into the flames
and you will see
just the same dreary
bleakness as we
do in anybody
Track Name: Gone
you forgot where it began
but I will show you how it ends
you forgot where it began
but trust me
I will show you how it ends

and once you know the end
you cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
’cause this is it

you forgot where, how and when
but it’s like the fall of man
one could say that it began
with just one wrong you can’t amend

and once you know the end
you cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
and this is it
and we can‘t take back
all the things we‘ve said
’cause what is done is done

you can’t know what courage is
unless you’ve felt discouraged too
I thought this whole thing through
and couldn’t find a way
so this is me
losing heart again

and once you know the end
we cannot just pretend
that what was gone was already gone
and this is it
this truly is it
and we can‘t take back
all the things we‘ve said
’cause what is done is done

and we can‘t, we won‘t take back
all the things we said
cause what is done and what is gone is gone
no, we can‘t, we won‘t take back
all the things we said
and just like that, just like that, you‘re gone
Track Name: Free Like Tonight
why can‘t we always feel free like tonight
no doubt in your eyes and peace on my mind
why can‘t we always be brave like tonight
we‘ve got no time for goodbyes to what‘s left behind

let us forget what we‘ve done
so we can deny what we‘ve become
’cause this is forever and this is eternal

and shouldn‘t we always be bold like that night
and follow our hearts and do, do what is right

now let us forget all that we‘ve done
so we can deny what we‘ve become again

this is forever
this is eternal
Track Name: New York in the Rain
isn‘t it beautiful, new york in the rain?
you‘re dancing with strangers
and their heartbreak runs through your veins

here we are, you and me and the panic of a city
full of cowards and thieves and hopeless romantics
ain‘t it tragic
we are lost in the rain

I sense danger in the ghost of your smile
pretending that there‘s just
the world I‘ve seen through your eyes

don‘t you love new york in the rain?
you‘re siding with strangers
and yet they cannot soften your pain

here we are, you and me and the panic of a city
full of cowards and thieves and hopeless romantics
and ain‘t it tragic
we are lost in the rain

and raindrops of sorrow
turn to blood in our veins
Track Name: Annabelle
she cried for something that could never thrive
and she screamed for help at the top of her lungs

she‘s got her father‘s love for veracity
but she is such easy prey for liars like me

oh annabelle
how do you sleep and what‘s worth your pain
when you know that no one dies well?

she‘s got her mother‘s eyes of misery
oh but for me, it‘s so easy to lose myself in them

oh annabelle
you stole my kisses and begged for more
i cried and trembled with blood on my hands

oh annabelle
Track Name: Monochrome
the streets are still wet
and traffic lights flicker but never turn
but there‘s no reason yet
to take off and never come back
i‘ll see you soon i said
and i hoped I would

the golden glare of headlight
in the signs along the road from home
memories of you that show the way
the golden glare of headlight
in the signs along the road from home
memories of you that lead away

this town‘s deserted, depressing and desolate
the air is thicker than i thought it could be
ain‘t that a reason
to set out and never return again
to set out and never come back again

i‘ll see you soon, i said
and i hoped i would
i hoped i could return

i‘ll see you soon, i said
and i knew i lied
and i knew i lied
to a memory of you
i‘ll see you soon, i said

the golden glare of headlight
in the signs along the road from home
memories of you that show the way
the golden glare of headlight
in the signs along the road from home
a kaleidoscope in monochrome
Track Name: Times of Regret
i always said
i wanted it all
now all i want
is the curtain to fall
i really thought
that one day I could
go back in time
and kill the thought of your hand in mine

in times like these
you cannot seem to get ahead by looking back
and i don‘t think i should
but trust me, i will try again

i always said
i wanted it all
now all i want
is the curtain to fall
so i don‘t need
to act like i could
go back in time
and kill the thought of your hand in mine

in times like these
you cannot seem to get ahead by looking back
and i don‘t think i should
but trust me, i will try again
Track Name: Genovese Syndrome
you‘d fallen asleep
guess it was around 4
and i watched the sun rise
through the rear-view mirror

we had escaped the night
and the ghosts of our past
a few miles ahead
there was an exit, at last

but on the side of the road
the blackness arose
i saw two men hanging
and a third who now knows:

the innocent bystanders
who abetted the crime

we had escaped the night
and the ghosts of our past
a few miles ahead
there was an exit, at last
Track Name: Delusion of Love
could this really be
the end of it all
or is it just
a herald of what‘s still to come

crossed too many lines
i shouldn‘t have crossed
ain‘t there a way
to undo the wrong i have done

your eyes, they‘re giving away all the lies and deceit
but i, i am so lost in them, i can‘t really tell

crossed too many lines
you shouldn‘t have crossed
and there is no way
to undo the wrong that you‘ve done

your eyes, they‘re giving away all the lies and deceit
but i, i am so lost in them, i can‘t even tell

do you need me
more than i need you
or do i need you
more than you need me
why do i need this
more than anything else?

your eyes, they‘re giving away all the lies and deceit
but i, i am so lost in them, i can‘t even tell
Track Name: Everything We'll Ever Be
all my life i was led to believe
the past is what has been
when in reality
it‘s everything we‘ll ever be
there‘s no end to what was
and whatever will be

what‘s left of you
when you give everything
do you still believe you can be anything
there‘s no end to who we were
and whoever we can be
and everything we will be

we were led to believe
the past is all that we had
when in reality
it‘s everything there will ever be

what‘s left of you when you give everything
do you still believe you can be anything
there‘s no end to who we were
and whoever we can be
and everything we will be

what‘s left of you
when you give everything that you are
why believe you could be anything that you want
there‘s no end to who we were
and whoever we can be

there‘s no change in who we were
and whoever we can be
and everything we will be
we‘ll be
we‘ll be
Track Name: Countings
different places
same issues
and everything i was

different places
same issues
hell, i miss you

could it be
that you are everything i‘m not

dear distress
how long has it been
since we spoke last

yes, it‘s hard
it‘s intense to go on
when it feels like
we are breaking apart

could it be
that you are everything i‘m not

could it be
that we are breaking apart

are we breaking apart?
are we breaking apart?
are we breaking...
